Pilgrims weary of new look Hornets

Pilgrims weary of new look Hornets

Plymouth Argyll boss Paul Sturrock admits he`s had "sleepless nights" after watching DVDs and reading recent reports of Watford of late and reckons a different Hornets side will turn up at Home Park to the one that lost 1-0 to his Green Army back in December!

Indeed, he should. That home defeat - bought about by David Norris` classy 89th minute strike - saw Aidy Boothroyd`s side without the likes of regulars Danny Shittu, Jobi McAnuff, and Darius Henderson whilst a host of new faces have also come in to strengthen the Vicarage Road squad

A fact not lost on the Pilgrims gaffer who told thisisplymouth.co.uk "They [Watford] are a completely different team - there was no [Darius] Henderson then and they signed [Collins] John, [Leigh] Bromby and [Matt] Sadler. There are four, maybe five, players who weren`t involved that day.

Sturrock also added "They [Watford] have got players who can hurt you all over the pitch and they play to their strengths. They are big, strong and physical and we have got to match all that if we are going to take anything out of the game"
